The end of last week brought our new summer hive of bees.
Since I am not really in the position to be stung, or even wear the bee coat, Josh has graciously step up to take on this job until the baby arrives. A pretty big deal since Josh would really rather be anywhere else than surrounded by thousands of bees each time he opens the hive.
And since Josh needed a little help with establishing the hive, the kids and I took on the role of baby-sitters for our neighbor's great-granddaughter. He helped Josh and we helped him by watching the baby he takes care of. It was so fun to see how the balance of four kids was for part of a day. Bottom line, when I brought out the "baby" toys the kids were really more interested in those than the baby herself. Adding a baby of our own soon should bring an interesting dynamic for sure.
